Default ASSYST OIL LEVEL ACCURACY

Well, I am certainly impressed with ASSYST's oil level accuracy. Allowed oil to drain over night, not that it's necessary, but because I want to and can. Added 10 quarts of oil and checked MFD oil level display indicating to add 1 quart. added 11th quart and, voila! Perfect.

BTW AND FWIW, it is not necessary to remove the filter box and related components to R&R the oil filter.

UPDATE: Ran vehicle for a few minutes, checked and found no leaks. Powered-down, did some chores for an hour and rechecked ASSYST. Indicated add 1 quart. Checked dipstick and level was at the bottom mark. Added 12th quart. Checked dipstick, just a smidge above half and ASSYST says oil level "OK." I'll check again once engine is up to operating temperature.

Like I was told when I finished a test early, it is always good to check your work

Question: since any oil level between the upper and lower dippy stick marks is considered an acceptable "operating range" and considering the potential of oil dilution, would it not be prudent to leave a bit of room? No harm can come from operating at half full, correct?

Just askin?

Not sure, had one professor advise don't second guess yourself, go with your first choice. If using Scantron, I'd always ensure I didn't skip a line.

But yes, always double-check your work!

Bliss
My way of thinking would be; leaving room for a higher percentage of diesel oil dilution (quart) before the warning signal; allows for less care and thought for the engines long life.
I fill full and haven't had to drain.

Yes, you are correct. Your attention to detail is impressive and correction appreciated (No snark).
